Charles C.F. Greville et al. in Roehampton House, Roehampton - 20 November, 1829, at night

from Journal entry, 20 November 1829, page 245:

In the evening [Thomas] Moore sang, but the pianoforte was horrid, and he was not in good voice; still his singing ‘va dritto al cuore,’ for it produces an exceeding sadness, and brings to mind a thousand melancholy recollections, and generates many melancholy anticipations.
